Spamd failing

If you find the “spamd” failing error  on an exim restart.

root@server [~]# /etc/init.d/exim restart

Shutting down exim: [ OK ]

Shutting down antirelayd: [ OK ]

Shutting down spamd: [ FAILED ]

Starting exim-26: [ OK ]

Starting exim: [ OK ]

Starting exim-smtps: [ OK ]

Starting antirelayd: [ OK ]


When disabling “spamd”, the Cpanel create a file named “/etc/spamdisable” which may not get deleted on enabling the “spamd” feature again. Check the presence of the above said file.

The issue may also arise due to unavailability of the perl module “Mail::SpamAssassin” by installing the the same and on restarting the exim, the issue will be fixed. 

1. /scripts/perlinstaller –force Mail::SpamAssassin 

2. /etc/init.d/exim restart
